Hutchinson took some time to get in.

Yanda will probably be similar.

Good to see James get in. He was a hell of an all around back.

Agreed, although it should not take ads long as it does for guards, to get in.

 

I know it is hard to quantify how good they are, but it is almost impossible to win without good ones.

Then that leaves only 2 open spots next year.

I'm divided on Calvin Johnson. He's definitely a HOF talent but he didn't play long enough IMO.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Sometimes the 5 spots is more than enough, other years nowhere near enough.  Next year feels like the later.

I see that.  He only played 9 years but he was dominant in those 9 years.  The amazing thing is Johnson is still only 34.

I at least thought he wouldn’t have gotten in so quickly, but definitely deserves to be in. Jim Brown only played 9 years, Gayle Sayers only 7. Among HOF WRs, 9 seasons is the tied for the shortest tenure with Lynn Swann, who isn’t worthy IMO, Johnson did quite a bit on a bad, bad team in 9 years though.

He was a dominant monster for 9 years. Guys that do that and then fall of significantly for the next 5 years are locks. So is he. Doesnt get penalized for not playing when he still could have.

Johnson's HOF worthy.  Only knock against him is that his single season yardage record is kind of a joke.

About time Flores got in.

Until I saw his name on the list of potential inductees, I thought he was already in.
